Reviews for the Pastel Course

Hi Jane, First thank you yet again for such positive and helpful comments! I just had to send my revised picture as thanks to your tip-A touch of yellow to the front trees and zing the background hill receded! I did get acrylics to under paint and I enjoyed using them! Your courses have enabled me to enjoy painting and given me the confidence to paint on! I can’t thank you enough!
Best of wishes Maureen x
